People say we're addicted but I say we do it for functionality...how many Apple devices do you have?

Hello All,

In our house we have 2 iPhone 5s, 2 Apple TVs, iPad mini and Macbook pro. Friends of my wife and I said we are addicted to Apple products. I will say that my wife has been in love with iPhone since 2008 but I'm always changing devices to see what's new and hot in the market but I always end up back with iPhone. And my number one reason is ease of use. The reason why we have all those products is because they just work so well together and make enjoying entertainment in the house much easier and convenient. Gaming, productivity and entertainment on all of these devices.... seamless. We can easily mirror or stream from our devices to our main TV and everything stays connected with our accounts and makes like a lot easier. Especially when dealing with a lot of other products from other companies and having to figure out how to get them all to work easy, this just makes the experience much more enjoyable.

So I guess we are a little addicted, but not to the products per se, but more to how they work together. How about you? How many products do you have and is there any thing makes the cost worthwhile?

I would agree with your assessment... the Apple products are stylish to look at, a pleasure to use... but the key selling point is the ecosystem and how well everything works together... as is often said of Apple products, they "just work".

Exactly. I mean I've had all these products at different points in time over the past few years. Now is the only time where I have them together and it just all makes sense together. One product really builds on the next. Of all the products I've owned, Apple appears to be the only one that makes a concerted effort that different products still are able to work together without hassle. I mean when using the PS3 to watch movies and having to grab it while using my harmony remote to control volume and now 1 remote to control them all is just a small thing that was greatly improved. And I was able to get everything at reasonable prices so that added to it ;)

Wow. I'd probably have a lot more too if I kept older generations. Usually, I upgrade and then sell the older one while some like to hang on. But Wow you are "apple'd" up LOL.

Just 1 an iPad mini! But in the past I have had iPod touches of each generation up to and including the 4th, plus an original iPad. I am a tech junkie. Currently besides the mini, I have a BB Z10, BB PlayBook, Samsung S4 (just traded my Note 2 for it), 2 Roku boxes, and a Vizio CoStar (GoogleTV). In the past I have owned more Android tablets than I care to mention, and many Android phones, and 1 Win Phone8 (Lumia 822).

Ecosystem. That's what drives it. Everything my family owns is Apple, with the exception of Samsung TV's and Amazon Kindle e-readers(paper white, which Apple doesn't have),

Up until 2012 I had not owned an Apple product in my life then my wife got the iPhone 4, soon after, she got the iPad, then I dumped my Android phone and tablet and got an iPhone 4s, when our Blue Ray died we got an Apple TV for streaming and when my laptop died I got an MBA, so we are an Apple house now!

I myself have my iPhone5, iPad Mini, Macbook Pro and an Apple TV. Over the years i successfully convinced my parents, even grandparents to join the ecosystem, which makes it very convenient to communicate within the family despite being scattered across the world. Nothing beats facetime from Pad to Pad.

I have a 5th gen iPod touch, 3rd gen iPad, and an Apple TV. My wife has an iPhone 4S, iPad mini, and a 1st gen iPad (along with a work issued 4S and 2nd gen iPad). Both my kids have hand me down 4th gen iPod touches.

The ecosystem, integration, and ease of use are probably the biggest draws.
